Theoretical models generally predict a positive relation between the two. Nevertheless, the empirical findings so far have been inconclusive. Using a generalization of the analytical framework developed by Theodossiou and Savva (2016) along with time-varying asymmetry, linked to the upside and downside uncertainty, the risk-return puzzle is investigated across international stock markets. The investigation reveals that the contradictory findings are the result of ignoring the impact of skewness on the total price of risk. That is, in the absence of skewness the relationship between risk and return is positive as depicted by finance theory. However, negative skewness results in lowering the total price of risk and in some cases reverting its sign from positive to negative.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/13471||ISSN:||14798409||DOI:||10.1093/jjfinec/nby014||Rights:||© The Author(s) 2018.
